Horrible isn't it? Yet somehow so stupidly horrible it's not worth fussing about.
As has been mentioned the 'lifestyle' / 'aspire to THIS' cleverer stuff, complete with music supposedly associated with the sought demographic is seriously creepy, coupled with Perfume and Coffee Ads that scream SICK - but you can't see the reason there, on the screen, as clearly as your subconscious recognises it. And all to sell more crap, branding blanding, more indebtedness, more imports, more landfill. I actually look away from the screen sometimes as I can feel this insidious creep, this nauseating intrusion. Hate it!



Bloody mad isn't it?  At times of increased awareness (read: acceptance) that there IS such a thing as Global warming, and that car exhausts aren't exactly helping matters - new motors sold recently all seem to sport exaggerated / stylised, extra-large exhausts pipe endy-thingies - in sort of space vehicle type shapes, so you can stylishly proclaim to all just how much crap you're spewing out as you drive to Tescos.  Bloody weird.

No matter if you have an older, smaller engined car - just chuck an after-market wide-bore exhaust on, AND IT'LL SOUND LIKE A FERRARI! - fabulous.
Young (and not so young) twerps can blip their throttle pedals up and down the HMO's thin streets at one-in-the-morning for chrissakes - believing for all their worth that it doesn't make their little car sound THOROUGHLY INADEQUATE.

I don't understand, I really don't.


Game of Clones

Helluva lot of copycat Game of Thrones mini TV series and Movie themes around aren't there?
"Owww . . . " said the money men - "they seem to like Empires falling and large armies n' stuff - QUICK! - get a load more shit out there"


Cold snap

Blimmey the weather babes have been excited - every damned weather report for the past week has been peppered with dark mutterings, heavy expressions and superlatives - all   about the upcoming cold spell (April 25/26 - 2017).

It's almost as if they feel finally justified in their roles - in their lives - they are, at last, the NEWS they always wanted to be.


old news

Eh?  Didn't we all get told this about forty years ago?
